SWERTLOW NEW YORK (UPI) - ^e Willie Namath, a sometime football player and pantyhose salesman, summoned the Big City press corps to announce he was jumping to a toilet water company for $5 million. Joe Willie came out smelling like a rose and the press like stink weeds. It was another media hustle, the sweet fragrance of success. "We didn't even get a bottle of eau de cologne," said one sports scribe, "He didn't even give us lunch." Joe Namath is a b|g name in the football world, which in the United States, makes him some sort of important person, like a ex-presidential candidate. So when Joe Willie calls a press conference, the men with cameras and pencils rush to \the scene. Willie's -, words make headlines and fill airtime. , At this moment in history, Joe Nam- ath is unhappy with his contract with the Njew York Jets. He wants more money to throw footballs. A million- dollar contract would make his arm feel better, but the Jets say no. Earlier, Namath could have jumped to the WFL for a reported $4 million, but' that would have meant leaving New York and that's the Big Apple for guys like Joe Willie. So now, he must make his bed with the Jets. And one of the ways of keeping him in'silk sheets is to put pressure on the Jets. Tuesday's news conference was the arm twister. Joe Willie, by way of the press, tells the Jets he has a fat contract with Faberge, Inc., a toiletries company. He doesn't need football any more, the'' message says, except, for a large fee. The Jets, who are without a decent quarterback, have the ball in their corner. Faberge walks away with a load of free publicity. Chadwick Tips Galena Twice CHADWICK-The Chadwick Silver Streaks ran their baseball record to 369 Tuesday night with a 2-1, 6-5 doubleheader victory over the Galena Pirates here.

Schneider's run-scoring double in the fifth inning-proved to be the big blow in Chadwick's second game victory.

Douglas St. Phone 233-61 61 Over the years, Joe Namath and others have used the press, especially television, for their own narrow ends. Namath's annual tantrums around training time are a legend' Joe's knee hurts, the-NFL wants him to get out of the restaurant business, Joe quits football, Joe returns to football.... He is a creature of the media. By now, one would think the editors of major publications and television stations would become wise to tricksters like Namath. They don't. Every day, they fall all over themselves to get a man at the scene because no one has the courage to say, "Tell Willie Boy to Drop Dead. He's a phony, and we don't cover phonies, liars or bunko artists." Every day, newsmen get roped into thinking they must be competitive, they must have this story because guys like Joe Namath make those headlines and fill airtime. If newsmen sat back, stopped the presses or pulled the plug on their cameras for a minute, they might realize that they are being used and so is the public. Just because someone has acheived some notoriety or fame doesn't mean he should make news. This goes for football players to presidential hopeful. • .,... .. But no, the tornado of news 'keeps sucking newsmen into the belief that when some celebrity or politician or sports figure calls a press conference, they must report what he or she says, no matter if they believe what is said or not. What is missing is a sense of integrity. Just because someone calls a news conference doesn't mean newsmen have to go dashing over. And this goes for those who cover the gridiron or White House.
